Philippe Vermès in conversation with Johan Kugelberg

In May 1968, at a time of huge student unrest and public protest, Philippe Vermès was enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He helped to found the Atelier Populaire, producing a remarkable series of posters to encourage the students and strikers who clashed with the government and the police. He will be in discussion with Johan Kugelberg, the editor of a new book about the visual legacy of that month.

Beauty is in the Street - A Visual Record of the May '68 Paris Uprising reproduces over 200 of the posters produced by the Atelier Populaire, as well as a wealth of photographs and first-hand accounts of the protests. The book is published by Four Corners Books, a non-profit publisher based at Raven Row.

This event is free but places are limited so booking is essential. Places will be offered on a first come first served basis to people who email info[at]ravenrow.org to reserve a place.
